The Nutcracker Templates

The first ornament of the typical big toothed and bearded face wearing a black hat is the bust of a classic nutcracker. 
You'll find the template in a recent post here.

A second ornament is a slim minimalistic nutcracker: A squared nutcracker figurine with red uniform jacket and blue trousers is slimmer but higher table decor.

There are also materials like plain kitchen roles or toilet roles you can repurpose to stabilize a round nutcracker. Just use the printed template as a wrap. The round toy soldier is a real eye catcher: tall and slim in a minimalistic simple shape. 
Download the bust of the rounded nutcracker here.
The body part here.

To stabilize your paper nutcrackers you can use some thicker printer paper or cardboard. 

We glued the nutcracker cutouts on cardboard before we folded them. There is a short illustrated step by step instruction in a recent post here on how to fold cardboard cleanly.
